On August 31, 2006, President Bush flew to Salt Lake and met with Gordon B. Hinckley who was then the president of the Mormon Church. See President Bush mourns Gordon B. Hinckley

Paul Craig Roberts wrote, “His reward for speaking out was to have his tenure contract bought out by BYU, many believe under orders from the federal government backed up with the threat that all federal support of science at BYU would be terminated unless Stephen Jones was.” — 9/11 Destroyed America
I don’t believe his statement at 18:00 because he’d have to explain the forces required for the top of the building to fall to the side. Absent horizontal forces, objects fall straight down. Absent resistance, they fall at free-fall acceleration.
More than two thousand architects and engineers, including structural engineers, continue to post evidence and with their advanced degrees, they are more credible than thug debunkers:
WTC 7 was 300 feet away from the north tower. What forces other than explosives could propel heavy steel beams and sections of the building horizontally that far?
Yes, there was damage to the south side but the building withstood it and didn’t even buckle until after 5 pm. Even NIST reported the south side damage was not severe enough to bring down the building.
My favorite videos on WTC 7 are from physics professor David Chandler.
A friend asks, “So what about the south side of WTC 7 and why does it get no mention in that video? Doesn’t that make you wonder about the presenter’s honesty? ”
I don’t think he was dishonest–I think he just didn’t consider it a factor. He’s just one of many scientists who has come to the same conclusion.
The damage to the south side was not severe enough. I suspect if the south side of his home was damaged by a large hail storm and then later collapsed symmetrically at free-fall acceleration, he probably wouldn’t attribute that to its collapse.
“The alleged damage was asymmetric, confined to the tower’s south side, and any weakening of the steelwork from fire exposure would also be asymmetric. Thus, even if the damage were sufficient to cause the whole building to collapse, it would have fallen over asymmetrically — toward the south. But WTC 7 fell straight down, into its footprint.”
I watch BYU build steel frame buildings. They just built 5-story buildings for the new MTC. These buildings are mostly hollow. When you look at the steel frame, it is difficult to imagine office fires weakening the steel or damage to one part of it to cause the entire building to suddenly collapse into itself at free-fall acceleration.
In my childhood, I played with a steel-frame erector set. I still can’t think of anything I could do to cause the towers I built to suddenly collapse symmetrically into its own footprint at free-fall acceleration unless I blew up its support structure. That though would take a lot of expertise, trial and error and thought.
With great force, I could cause my towers to bend and tilt but unless a large moving object with far greater mass fell on them I can’t think of how I could get them to collapse in free-fall acceleration. Even if I could there would be a pile of bent beams, not ashes.
It is easy to criticize omissions. 🙂
WTC 7 was an office building and probably contained rugs, chairs, desks, wood, paper and curtains. Each floor had a layer of cement. For the same reason why your gas grille doesn’t melt in a fire, the steel wouldn’t melt.
Paper burns at 451°F, a self-cleaning oven gets 900°F, wood eventually gets as hot as 1,100°F but steel often melts at around 2500°F.
A 40-story steel-framed building in 2013 burned for 29 hours and didn’t collapse. See also
I’ve heard arguments about how the fires were hot enough to weaken steel. That does not explain how a symmetrical collapse at free-fall acceleration occurred.
Some agree with NIST’s explanation of the WTC 7 collapse but is it consistent with the collapse videos? See #14:

Next time you consider supporting the globalists agenda, their politicians, or their propaganda media which has convinced Americans to surrender their liberties for protection that led to six unconstitutional U.S. wars in the 21st century alone, consider the millions of deaths and the countless wounded and ruined families.
Whether or not you read or believe in the Book of Mormon, consider this scripture which tells us what God thinks about the supporting the globalist agenda. Substitute any of the words organization, church, politician or person for the word nation in the scripture below:
And whatsoever nation shall uphold such secret combinations, to get power and gain, until they shall spread over the nation, behold, they shall be destroyed; for the Lord will not suffer that the blood of his saints, which shall be shed by them, shall always cry unto him from the ground for vengeance upon them and yet he avenge them not. — Book of Mormon, Ether 8:22
If you haven’t yet heeded God’s commandment in Ether 8:23 to “awake to a sense of your awful situation” than start by studying Building 7: On 9/11 two planes crashed into two sky scrapers and yet three fell down at near free-fall acceleration. Watch the CBS and NBC reports of Building 7.
Do not donate to or support any organization that upholds secret combinations.
